Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies Recipe

This Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies recipe is very popular in our house. I love the fact that they are flourless. Adding protein to desserts make me feel less guilty about eating more than I should. Again everything in moderation. My kids love junk food just like any other kid out there. But making desserts a bit healthier does help. The added protein in this peanut butter cookie recipe is more for me than them!

For fewer calories, try using baking sweetener (erythritol) instead of the coconut sugar and also opt for dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet.

Difference between natural peanut butter and regular peanut butter

There is a big difference between both. Natural peanut butter has only two ingredients. Peanuts and salts. Even though you can now find natural unsalted peanut butter which will be simply ground peanuts. This is the healthiest kind of peanut butter out there. Regular peanut butter has a few more ingredients added to it like sugar and hydrogenated vegetable oil. This is done to make sure that their consistency isn’t affected by time and the surrounding temperature.

Can you use natural peanut butter in peanut butter cookies?

You can certainly use natural peanut butter but the results won’t be as great as using regular peanut butter. When you used natural peanut butter with your cookie recipe, it will tend to make your cookies spread out more and make them crispier.

    Would you say refrigerating the cookie dough before baking would make the cookies taste better like a traditional chocolate chip? Or would it not make a difference?

    Thank-you so much for this recipe! These are the best cookies I’ve had in some time.

    I did go ahead and half the recipe which was super easy to do. I also replaced the sweetener with just under 1/8 cup honey. It was fantastic!

    Could it be possible to know the calories and macro break down in carbs fat and protein if we simply just not use the chocolate chips ?

    • Rena says

      It’s per cookie. A lot of the calories are coming mostly from the chocolate chips. If you use sugar-free it will reduce it tremendously.

    These cookies were honestly soo good! I was googling a healthy recipe to make for my husband, who is all about that gym life and eating very clean and healthy. He wanted a treat that would appeal to his sweet tooth, but would also stick to his healthy life style. I’ve made several protein cookie recipes, and I I myself haven’t been a huge fan. This recipe however, I ate quite a few of them! I loved these cookies, and so did my husband! They were a little scary making at first because the dough was a little more moist then I’m use to, but they came out perfectly! I turned my oven down a bit and cooked them for a little bit shorter, but we love our cookies kind of gooey. This is a must when wanting a cookie that won’t make you feel guilty when you want more than one! Good job girl!!

      Hi Jamie. Yes, it is per cookie. Sorry! Try using dark chocolate chips instead and erythritol for baking instead of the coconut sugar.

    We all use different products…how many GRAMS of whey protein powder?
    And is it isolate or concentrate?
    And can we use vegan protein powder if we wanted (knowing it will change the flavour)?

    I have celiac disease and dairy intolerance. I made these using 3 scoops of sweet vanilla bean flavor Orgain organic plant based protein powder instead of the whey protein, and Nestle Toll House Simply Delicious dark chocolate chips which are also gluten free/dairy free. They turned out awesome!
